New Delhi, January 7
The Aam Aadmi Party has called on the BJP to dissolve the MCD and hold fresh elections as the party has “failed to run the body”.
The Delhi unit of the BJP has been protesting against the AAP Government for over a month now demanding the release of funds to the corporation.
On Thursday, AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj hit back saying that the ruling party in the centre has failed in their election promises made by then Delhi BJP President and MP Manoj Tiwari.
“The Aam Aadmi Party demands that the BJP should immediately dissolve the MCD and leave. Aam Aadmi Party also demands that the BJP should hold a new election for the MCD,” Bharadwaj said on Thursday.
“BJP has completely failed to run the MCD. The BJP was exposed and their lies along with their corruption were exposed in MCD. There are thousands of corruption charges against the BJP ruled MCD but the BJP does not even bother to answer any of the allegations. The Aam Aadmi Party demands and believes that the BJP should dissolve the MCD so that the citizens of Delhi get a chance to elect good people to govern the MCD,” he added.
Bharadwaj launched a scathing attack, especially against North Delhi MP Manoj Tiwari, and called for his resignation if he failed to convince the Central Government.
“The employees of the BJP ruled MCD are protesting at the Civic Centre demanding the immediate release of their pending salaries. The doctors, nurses, medical officials, teachers, sanitation workers and others who have worked in the time of COVID-19 pandemic relentlessly but have not received their salaries,” Bharadwaj said.
“Shri Manoj Tiwari has not brought a single penny from the BJP ruled central government. The central government also did not pay the required money or funds to the BJP ruled MCD. The Aam Aadmi Party demands that Shri Manoj Tiwari should immediately raise this issue in front of the BJP ruled central government and if he fails to convince the central government then he should immediately resign because he has no moral right to stay as an MP from Delhi,” Bharadwaj added.
